Scientists Make Progress on Blood Test to Detect the Most Deadly Cancers
Scientists are reporting progress on a blood test to detect many types of cancer at an early stage, including some of the most deadly ones that lack screening tools now. Many groups are working on liquid biopsy tests, which look for DNA and other things that tumors shed into blood, to try to find cancer before it spreads, when chances of cure are best. In a study Thursday in the journal Science, Johns Hopkins University scientists looked to see how well their experimental test detected cancer in people already known to have the disease. The blood tests found about 70 percent of eight common types of cancer in the 1,005 pat...

Medtronic Scolded for Calling Taiwan a Country
Chinese authorities don't take kindly to businesses calling Taiwan a country, as Medtronic now knows. The company was chastised Friday along with Delta Air Lines and fashion brand Zara, for making such a reference on its website. Chinese regulators forced the firms to formally apologize, but it could have been worse. Just a day earlier, U.S. hotel group Marriott was ordered to shut down its Chinese websites for a week for conducting an email survey in which it put Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, and Tibet on a par with China as a nation. China claims Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, and Tibet as territories. The issue serves as a warni...

Women Who Have Trouble Sleeping May Struggle With Infertility
BOSTON (CBS) – If you’re struggling to get pregnant, your sleep, or lack thereof, may be contributing. In a new study published in the journal Sleep, researchers looked at more than 50,000 women of reproductive age in Taiwan and found that those with sleep disorders other than sleep apnea had a more than three times greater likelihood of experiencing infertility compared to those who didn’t have trouble sleeping. The women with sleep problems were also more likely to have chronic health conditions like high blood pressure and thyroid issues, so it begs the question as to whether disordered sleep is just ...
